Tickets for the wildly popular event sold out quickly, and resale tickets definitely aren’t cheap. 

For instance, to see Caitlin Clark’s No.1 seeded Iowa take on No.5 seed Colorado on Saturday at 3:30pm, tickets on the broker site Seat Geek right now will cost you at least $146 for a ticket in the nosebleed section of MVP Arena, excluding fees. After that, prices to watch the game in person currently are as high as $30,000
